Watercolour horse ‘ Dun and dusted’

I had a great schooling session with Woody today, I bought the bombers bit which was on trial from the bit bank. Having a big fat tongue, he loves their happy tongue bit, and so do I, with huge improvements in his school work. He just needs to come off my leg a lot better! Off to the equestrian shop tomorrow,after riding as my daughter needs new wellies, just as exciting as visiting the art shop!

I was so happy I decided to paint this ‘Dun and dusted’ I have painted him before, but in whole body, and I usually alter the colour to suit me, and my mood of the moment, he was grey, I thought about making him bay, then decided he should be a shade of dun! The beauty of painting, is that it is what I choose    (most of the time).

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  2. Thank you, wet on wet, apart from the eye, and some of the nose, it does make it softer and more dreamy I think….I am surprised I managed to put the brushes down, as I usually can’t stop myself by placing extra hair once it is dry. I should learn from this?
